While it's often the case that you can leave our steps when building
-current from source, it is sometimes ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED that you
followed the steps precisely.
This is one of those times.
If you build a -current kernel without running config(8) and make
clean, then the resulting kernel WILL NOT RUN YOUR INSTALLED
USERLAND. If that happens, you will have to boot from the old kernel
(do you know how?) or boot from an alternate device like a CD.
If you are not 100% comfortable with doing that recovery, then you
should wait and install the next snapshot instead.

statfs change requires strict following of the build steps, or you'll
end up with a userland that can't mount (or remount!) critical filesystems
